Any athlete can benefit from qigong training. Runners. Cyclists. Dancers. Swimmers. Qigong is about becoming in tuned with your body as it moves through space. Qigong is about protecting your joints while providing a solid foundation for increased power, drive, punch or kick.
But, to obtain the full benefits of qigong, the practitioner must first learn the art of “listening”; quieting the mind to become aware of his/her own breathing, posture, joint position, body mechanics, balance and core stability.
